Boston Magazine Counters Rolling Stone‘s Boston Bomber Cover: ‘This Is The Real Face of Terror’ (TheWrap / MediaAlley)
Boston Magazine published never-before-seen photos of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Thursday in response to Rolling Stone‘s controversial cover that critics felt depicted the accused murderer as a rock star. The photos, supplied by Mass. state police sergeant Sean Murphy, were intended to show the “real face of terror.” In one, a bloodied Tsarnaev emerges from his boat hideout while a sniper rifle trains its laser sight on his head. Boston Magazine Sean Murphy: “As a professional law-enforcement officer of 25 years, I believe that the image that was portrayed by Rolling Stone magazine was an insult to any person who has ever worn a uniform of any color or any police organization or military branch, and the family members who have ever lost a loved one serving in the line of duty. The truth is that glamorizing the face of terror is not just insulting to the family members of those killed in the line of duty, it also could be an incentive to those who may be unstable to do something to get their face on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The Atlantic Wire While Murphy’s photographs certainly put some distance between Tsarnaev and the audience, both physically and emotionally, they will, like nearly any photograph, depend on the interpretation of the viewer to complete their message. Rolling Stone‘s image’s normalcy is uncomfortable, but its eeriness speaks volumes. The new images depict a man, at a distance, defeated. But in them, he is also seen at his most vulnerable. CNN John Wolfson, Boston Magazine‘s editor-in-chief, said the magazine has hundreds of similar photos and will publish more in its September issue. Boston Globe / MetroDesk A state police spokesman said Thursday night that Murphy had been relieved of duty for one day and will be subject to an internal investigation. “His duty status will be determined at a hearing in the near future,” said spokesman David Procopio. “[Thursday’s] dissemination to Boston Magazine of photographs of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and police activity related to his capture was not authorized by the Massachusetts State Police,” Procopio said in a statement. Boston Magazine Just one day after the curtain was raised on the Rolling Stone cover featuring Tsarnaev, one day before it hit newsstands, there were several copies of the magazine selling on eBay for around $20.

Netflix Makes History With First Emmy Nominations (Ad Age / Media News)
Netflix has received nine Emmy nods for House of Cards and three for Arrested Development, marking the first time a series that originated on non-traditional TV landed any nominations in a major category. PRNewser The one-time snail mail DVD service (and Qwikster… remember that?) has made history with a best drama nomination for its original series House of Cards. In fact, it earned a total of nine nominations, including recognition for acting. It helps when you’ve got Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright in the cast. Forbes / Dorothy Pomerantz There’s no question that Thursday was a huge win for Netflix. But it’s a little early to break out the champagne and toast the company as the next coming of HBO. Netflix earned more nominations than Starz (which only raked up three nods) but way fewer than Showtime and HBO, which earned 31 and 108 respectively. BuzzFeed Unlike the Oscars or Grammys, which provide an immediate sales boost for nominees, the impact the Emmys has on an individual show’s ratings is debatable, negligible and fleeting. No matter, though, as the end game for Netflix isn’t to get more people to watch House of Cards or Arrested Development or its latest, much-hyped offering, Orange is the New Black. Rather, it is to get more people to agree to pay $7.99 per month for either its streaming video or DVD-by-mail service or $15.98 for both. Its original programming is just a means to an end. TVNewser HBO’s VICE TV program received a nomination in the “Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series” category, an impressive showing in its first season. It is up against American Masters and The Abolitionists on PBS, The Men Who Built America on History and Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman on Science Channel. NYT / Arts Beat On Thursday, Kerry Washington became the first African-American actress to be nominated for best actress in a drama since 1995, when Cicely Tyson was nominated (and lost) for Sweet Justice.
